When users add new items through Drag & Drop, saving them, or importing them, the folder's grid view will highlight these items in bold and display a distinctive orange dot for quick recognition.

"Date Added" Column

To further enhance organization and tracking, we have added a new column to the folder's grid view that displays the precise date when a citation was added to that folder. Whether it was added today, 2-4 days ago, a week ago, or even longer, you can now readily keep track of when each item was included.

These valuable additions work together to deliver a streamlined workflow, making organization and collaboration a breeze.
